Canvases Papers Sketchbooks


My painting combines figuration and abstraction. Papers and canvases  are designed  from picturial objects, often things, but also landscapes, figures, inscriptions, etc. These realities are like a pretext to the exercise of painting, of composition. What matters is the space of the canvas or the paper . My painting does not aim to erase the realities; but it's a world in itself.

Drawings, canvases and papers can be organised according to four sets, Animality/Humanity, Thing/Nothing, Fruit/Flower/ City/Landscape. These sets represent the parts of reality I use to the exercise of pictorial composition.

Lastest works
Among these, six canvases, a set, and a last paper, resulting from my alarm with the russian invasion in Ukraine, already followed by the development of totalitarianism in Russia
